Is it possible to consume record data (not just the record id) via the Streaming Api for a delete operation? The only thing that seems to come over is the recordId.

Here is an example of the pushTopic I have created:

PushTopic pushTopic = new PushTopic();
pushTopic.Name = 'testDelete';
pushTopic.Query = 'SELECT Id, data__c FROM test_object__c';
pushTopic.ApiVersion = 38.0;
pushTopic.NotifyForOperationDelete = true;
pushTopic.NotifyForOperationCreate = false;
pushTopic.NotifyForOperationUpdate = false;
pushTopic.NotifyForOperationUndelete = false;
pushTopic.NotifyForFields = 'All';
insert pushTopic;

Here is the output from Streaming Api:

    "clientId": "wsuskgmt6r9gj43i4e9buv9w9l",
    "data": {
        "event": {
            "createdDate": "2017-01-12T17:30:28.395Z",
            "replayId": 11,
            "type": "deleted"
        "sobject": {
            "Id": "a37B0000000AQUuIAO"
    "channel": "/topic/testDelete"

As you can see, I only have the Id.

For my specific use case I am trying to migrate data from a lead when it is merged into another lead. Ideally, i could take the masterRecordId of the child record being deleted and use that to update the associated records to point to the new master. Since I am only given the record id from the child record, I need to make an extra query to get the masterRecordId. If I could get that information from the Streaming Api directly, that would be great.

You cannot. In fact, delete is not even mentioned when talking about the fields available for the notifications. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_streaming.meta/api_streaming/notifyforfields_all.htm

I also tried to use an update notification with: pushTopic.Query = 'SELECT Id, data__c FROM test_object__c Where isDeleted = true ALL ROWS';

but ALL ROWS was not available in that context.
